Guernsey FC secured their first back-to-back Ryman South wins in eight weeks after a 2-1 home success over bottom side Corinthian Casuals at Footes Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Guernsey FC secured their first back-to-back Ryman South wins in eight weeks after a 2-1 home success over bottom side Corinthian Casuals at Footes Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Dave Rihoy gave the Green Lions a first-half lead with an excellent volley after some tremendous build-up work from Marc McGrath, although McGrath spurned two good one-on-one opportunities himself before the break.

After half-time, a late Ross Allen penalty looked to have made the game safe, although there were a few late nervy moments after Jamie Dodd turned into his own goal in the 88th minute to give the visitors some hope.

However, GFC held out well for an important win that keeps them right in the mix for a play-off spot as they have reached the halfway stage of their 46-game campaign, with their next challenge a home New Years Day match against Crawley Down Gatwick, with a 4pm kick off.

Bowdy

This game was awful. Corinthians looked like a pub team and should have been easily beaten by Guernsey. Far too many poor performances for GFC to even start listing the only positive was young Trebert's performance the rest just drifted in and out of the game and if we had been playing a team of any ability we would have been beaten comfortably

Careful Bowdy, you're risking being attacked by the "GFC can do no wrong brigade".

I see that attendances continue to fall, the last 5 matches have had an average of 916, the fair weather fans are slowly but surely choosing to chat to friends at home or down the pub rather than go to Foote's Lane for a natter.

The predictions just keep on coming true....

Ex-Northerner, I'm not very impressed by your 'predictions' - its pretty obvious that less people will be willing to stand around outside for two hours when the weather is foul. Equally obvious is the fact that attendance figures will rise again for key matches and as weather improves. I'm sure you won't be missed if you'd rather go down the pub instead, just take your pessimism and negativity with you.
